I am officially in full spring-mode.  This dish is the perfect recipe to satisfy all of your spring-food dreams.  The pasta is light, yet still decadent.  Piping hot noodles cook the egg yolks and melt the Parmesan cheese so it can coat each noodle in yummy goodness.  With every bite, you get a taste of…

Fried Chicken Biscuit Sliders with Spicy Honey Butter

All-American Corn Dogs

Let’s talk about deep fried wieners.  They are my favorite wieners.  Corn dogs are like the LeBrons of fried things.  These seem intimidating but they are super dumb easy to make.  Not to mention from start to finish these literally take about 15 minutes to make.  The only thing that could have made these corn…

Classic Double Cheeseburger

‘Murica, am I right?  If you could eat America, it would be this burger.  This meat stack is very simple yet so delicious.  I’m talking, bun, mayo, beef, cheese, and bacon; dassit (okay, I threw some onion rings on there too but honestly if everything had onion rings on them we would have world peace). …
